Police officer killed while investigating burglary

Senior Home Affairs Correspondent

The police officer who was killed while attending reports of a burglary late last night was dragged along by a vehicle, Thames Valley police have said. PC Andrew Harper, who was 28, had got married just four weeks ago. The Prime Minister Boris Johnson described it as a ‘mindless and a brutal crime’.  Ten men and boys – aged between 13 and 30 – are now in custody on suspicion of murder.
